The Long Road to Legalization in Valdosta, GA

A brief overview of hemp and CBD in the US

Over the last decade, there's been some debate about where hemp and CBD fit into the discussion surrounding THC, the mind-altering substance found in cannabis. Even though CBD has none of the psychoactive properties of THC, it was illegal to use until recently.

But in 2018, the U.S. Congress officially removed hemp products with 0.3% THC or less from the Controlled Substances Act. As a result, it's now legal to use and consume hemp-derived CBD products in most states.

When the federal government removed hemp from controlled substances, Georgia followed suit with the Georgia Hemp Farming Act 2019. How does this relate to cannabis, CBD flowers and our high-quality CBD products? As hemp has turned into an agricultural product, the Georgia Department of Agriculture has assumed oversight and authority of the crop.

According to this department, hemp is the Cannabis sativa L. plant and any parts and derivates of it, whether growing or not, with the federally defined THC level of 0.3% or lower. This dictates what cannabis, CBD flowers and CBD products we can sell. While selling hemp-derived products under this limit is legal, infused food products are not unless they have prior approval from the FDA due to stipulations in legislation.

It remains illegal to purchase marijuana-derived CBD products without a medical card in Georgia.
